Future Things

Random rubbish rummaged through,

Outdated papers—nothing new.

Pictures sorted, search enabled,

All appropriately labeled.

Books upon the shelves arrayed.

Tchotchkes for the nonce displayed.

Posterity soaking in the sink.

Perhaps a good time now to think!

Spring's arriving in the garden—

Winter's wrought its usual wreck

Never deigning to beg pardon.

From the sideboard hors d'oeuvres beckon,

Chaise longue–seated on the deck,

Guests imbibing gin and tonic

Discuss the future things ironic

With which, tomorrow, they must reckon.
